Scholarship to support work that makes the church safe for ALL

Scholarship & Grant Programs
In recognition of Dr. Louie Crew’s many years of prophetic witness in and beyond the Diocese, The OASIS – a justice ministry of the Episcopal Diocese of Newark – is pleased to announce a fund to support scholarly work that shares our mission “to make the church safe for ALL people, and to challenge the church when its interest is self-preservation and not prophetic witness.”
The OASIS will award up to two annual scholarships of $2,500. Scholarship applications will be vetted by a special Scholarship Committee which will include Dr. Crew and winners will be announced at our anniversary event in June.
We welcome applications from writers, students, and researchers. To apply:
  • Describe specifically in no more than 500 words how you will use the money to support ongoing scholarly work which shares the Oasis'
    mission "to make the church safe for ALL people, and to challenge the church when its interest is self-preservation and not prophetic witness."
  • At the top of the sheet include your name and contact information.
  • Attach a résumé no longer than one sheet.
  • On a third sheet, provide a name, postal address, phone number and any
    electronic address for two references who know you and your scholarship.
We will also entertain applications for grants for specific projects within a congregation or ministry which are in keeping with our mission and goals. To be considered please supply the following information.
  • What is the purpose of the grant?
  • How will the grant be used that’s aligned with The Oasis’ mission?
  • What’s the expected outcome as a result of the grant?
Please answer in as much detail as necessary and send your application to us at the contact below. Please note that if a grant is awarded a full accounting of the expenditure will be required.
The application period for 2012 has already concluded. If you would like to be considered for next year's awards, please apply by April 1st, 2013.
